I was thinking about how stupid child leashes are and was reminded of Sam’s harness…

This is just what my day needed.

Of all the houses in Leyton, the Starsmore’s residence had been, by far, the largest. They’d had all the trappings of the well-to-do despite the fact that Jono’s father had pissed away their fortune long ago. Still, the Starsmore’s managed to keep a tenuous hold on their estate and, if anyone asked father, they were doing quite well, thank you very much.

Jono had spent the better half of his young life being ignored. As a child he was a gangly looking sullen thing, with a large beaky nose and an unruly mop of auburn hair that obscured the better half of his face. He’d been quiet, thoughtful, musically gifted- nothing like the rest of the family. As a rule, the Starsmore’s had been entitled, ostentatious little shits. He’d been uncomfortable at parties, terrible at mingling and small talk, and completely uninterested in the upper society his parents so loved. He hadn’t fit their expectations and thus, had been dismissed early on.

When the Starsmore’s went on family vacations, Jono stayed home. He preferred the solitude of the large empty estate to the company of those whose only commonality was bloodline. At least when he was alone he could play his music.

Hey, Jono-Hivemind- do we know Chamber’s parents names? They were never really mentioned, right? All I remember is ski trips and Christmas socks.

They’ve never been named, but I personally have taken to calling them Abraham and Lucy.

Ahhh. I think I’m thinking of your stories then. I’ve just accepted that as who they are. Hah hah. I have this ‘problem’ where I mix up canon with fan fiction I really like. It’s gotten to the point where I basically have no idea what came from an actual comic and what was just really clever fan writing.

Considering how often fanfic is at least more internally consistent than canon, it’s bound to happen.  I honestly wish we could get some canon on Jono’s family, aside from the long estrangement and the Descended From Apocalypse thing.

True. Si gave us a hometown to reference. That’s the most development Jono’s had in years. Who knows how long he’ll be in limbo land now. *deep sighing*

I’m just going to reblog myself because this drawing still amuses me.

Amazing X-Men scans below the cut. Spoilers (er, obviously)

I completely forgot to read my comics today. D’oh.

Ric’s old X-Force costume looks like a weird dance outfit. Those pants? Like, what even are those? The fringe? Ugh.

I have a certain fondness for ‘Star’s uniform with the cape. I was a little sad they didn’t work the star into his X-Factor uniform since Longshot got to keep his.

Ric’s lovestruck face, goodness…
He’s just enjoying the view :D
Didn’t feel like inking tonight so I just coloured scribbles again.

I’m trying to re-read the old x-force but very much like the first time, I’m close to getting paralyzed from laughing too much so the progress is rather slow.

Liefeld’s ‘anatomy’ makes my brain hurt.

//Is he supposed to be sixteen here? <.<

Yup. They’re like 16-17. They’re all supposed to be teens except for Cable and Dom. Scary!

(though honestly it began with me doodling Tommy dancing to “Mmm Yeah” new version)

This makes me smile.
